The Great Ocean Walk is simply one of the most beautiful areas in Australia. If you manage to do the whole walk you will see wonderful scenery and bushland as well as the amazing wildlife. We did this walk with challenging weather...at times, horizontal hail!!...More

We walked 112km over five days. Stunning weather and varied scenery....from bush to farmland to cliffs to beaches. One of the best holidays we have had. We would be lucky to see more than 2-3 people a day.
